DateExport (git)

Allows you to export to a dated folder hierarchy.
For example:

    Destination: D:\photos
    Date format: %Y/%m/%d/%1I%p
    will output to: D:\photos\2010\05\24\04AM\DSC_2239.jpg

    Destination: S:\Somewhere
    Date format: %Y/%m - %b
    will output to: S:\Somewhere\2010\08 - Aug\DSC_1527.jpg

WARNING: THERE IS MINIMAL USER INPUT CHECKING.
         PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR INPUT.

Note the use of /, I have no idea if \ will work as a path separator but since / 
works on windows anyway, I would stick with that.

Time will be sourced from the dateTimeOriginal metadata and if not found will use
dateTimeDigitized.
You can select desired time source to use either the stored metadata for the time of
image taken or the time of export.
There are options for the handling of missing time metadata.

You can reset the "Do not show again" message prompt from the Lightroom Plug-in 
Manager window.
